i have 12 newspapers that cash -- that shows that they're the world champions. how come they are the world champions? because the obama family supports us. george bush used to support texas and he took the team down with him. i would like to show you some of the newspapers that i have. one went away. they do that and they did whatever they can. mr. president, i'm going to be the first one asking face-to- face to make it now, a
significant of honor to give the manager of the giants. i want to see you tomorrow with us to give this lovely team congratulations from all of us. mr. president, it is the time to prove yourself by sharing with us and sharing with the city. i am very glad to see dufty with his daughter sharing with us yesterday outside of city hall. tomorrow, we have one big -- and our respect to the team. i'm no different than anyone. all of us are happy. do you want to make me happy? show your face tomorrow and give them welcome and congratulations on my behalf and on behalf of
all of the city. i talked very loudly to any of one of you to hear my voice. i would like to see you there to tell them welcome back. thank you. >> i think that we will likely be at the celebration. thank you. >> did not accept money from the friends and foundation of the public library. it is no accident that the public library has the reputation as the most egregious sunshine violator in the city of san francisco. last year, the day tonight free- speech so egregiously that this was given to that at this commission for enforcement. the ethics commission says "the conduct of the library commission falls below the
standard of decency, good faith, right action and quietly required of all city officials. there was a time when this would have been considered an outrage, not just a violation of democracy but a violation of the social values of the community that allows us to survive. this is not an anomaly. this is all too typical of the library commission. you know very well the abuses that are unleashed when you allow private forces to raise private money with no accountability. you pretend you don't buy edu. the library has become a private income stream. privacy is what to the donors expect for their money. you are part of the rip-off. the at this commission will take up the violations for enforcement -- the ethics commission will take up the
violations. anyone who cares about democracy and community values means to be there. also, the other part of democracy is voting. today is election day. i want your vote. in fact, voting is making sure that democracy survives, the allies cost more than them -- the lies cost more than the money. >> this is a willie mays card from 1971. last night was so loud i could not sleep for anything because -- [singing] last night, they were high as a kite. they were dancing in the
moonlight dancing in the moonlight, they were feeling really right it is the giants tied and they were dancing deep into the night they are going to see the light they will not bar, they will not buy it and they will keep things right, they will be dancing into the moonlight -- they will not bark, they will not bite. let's dance, let's shout, shake your body down to the ground. night and day, they will party this is the only way we are going to celebrate
problem on selected then the mission. these contractors and the human rights commission have created an atmosphere that these the contras come to san francisco and they only pay truckdrivers $65 an hour. that is for tractor and trailer. the truckers would like to go on strike after a meeting last week because of the human rights commission. these are all african-american truckers by and large. i have had this trouble over the years. something needs to be done. somehow or another, the board of supervisors, the human rights commission, and the truckers need to get together. there is no trucker on $65 an hour. the city is demanding you pay the drivers $47 an hour.
next speaker. >> i am here to reiterate what was just stated. i did have the opportunity of meeting with the director of the human rights commission, and we did express their is an hour early drivers rate, but like any construction site, any piece of equipment on that job, you have an hour the rental rate, and you have an offer readers rent. the two together are what establishes the prevailing -- and you have another great. the two together are what establishes its three-year --
establishes it. upon entry you face a penalty of perjury with an electronic signature, so there's no way we can pay $47 an hour for a driver and actually billed for $85. did we have had an ongoing problem out of san francisco general. i do not know if it is an underlying motive to put them out of business. it is not just the black truckers. it is straight across the board in san francisco. what i was told is that the hourly rate for the operator is what they adopted. they did not adopt the
equipment hourly rates established by caltrans. i called the department of justice in washington, d.c., and they instructed bosnia -- instructed us. >> thank you very much. next speaker. >> i was born and raised here. do not get offended by what i am going to save. who is in control? i would like to know ♪ ♪ i asked the mayor
but he did not care ♪ ♪ the board of supervisors, some of you are a bunch of liars. the housing authorities, sometimes they just ignore mae ♪ ♪ it ain't no mystery, just take your history ♪ ♪ what is going down? ♪ blacks are leaving this town ♪ now they are going to ask jerry brown ♪ ♪ i really want to know who's in
control ♪ ♪ who is in control right here in san francisco ♪ ♪ i would like to know >> mr.'s , -- mr. paulson, you have competition. >> i am one of europe pointed members of the veterans affairs -- i am one of the appointed members of the veterans affairs commission. i am sure tamara of the parade is going to be stellar, but just
in a few more days, sunday is the veterans day parade, and your participation would be greatly appreciated. please do not forget your veterans of san francisco. thank you for your service. >> are there any other members of the public who wish to speak in general public comment? general comment is closed. >> item 38 through 40 will be acted on a single vote unless someone wishes it to be considered separate flav. >> would anyone like to sever any of these items? if not, we could take a roll call. [roll-call]
there are 11 ayes. >> those resolutions are adopted. we have one final item. supervisor maxwell has a commendation. i do understand the party would like to commend is here, and i would like to ask that we could suspend the board rules so we can hear that special order right now. colleagues, can we do that? if we could do that without objection, that should be the case, so with that, supervisor maxwell, the floor is yours. >> thank you for being here
